OmniPilot Software is making available for free
Lasso Developer 8.5, its software to enable Web developers to tie databases to Web sites.
Using Lasso, Web developers can create data-driven Web sites, supporting multiple databases simultaneously and migrating database information online. This marks the first time that OmniPilot has released a free version of Lasso. The company continues to sell Lasso Professional Server 8.5 and other Lasso-branded products.
Lasso Developer 8.5 supports five IP addresses and 200 connections per minute, enabling developers to test out their systems without needing to get a more expensive server package. Any products made using Lasso Developer 8.5 will require a Lasso Professional Server installation to deploy, of course.
A pack of free Lasso examples are included with the download, including ways to add blogs, message boards, quick polls and collaborative environments to Lasso-powered Web sites.
